Laci and Scott Peterson

June 28, 2004 -- ALMOST as riveting as an Ann Rule book, tonight's A&E special, "The Trial of Scott Peterson, (A Bill Curtis Special Report)," brings us up to the second on the case that has captured the nation.

How could it not?

On Christmas Eve, 2002, adorable "five-foot nothing," pregnant-as-can-be Laci Peterson took her dog for a walk. Whether she walked into the hands of a brutal stranger or was already dead at the hands of her loving husband, Scott, is the question now facing the six women and six men jurors.

(This number is not counting, of course, the country's newest media star, bounced juror Justin Falconer who was thrown off for violating jury ethics. Why haven't they charged him with contempt, by the way — instead of letting him be flown around the country to appear on more talk shows than Bill Clinton?) .........

Peterson prosecution faces uphill climb

By Brian Skoloff
Associated Press

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- As Scott Peterson's double-murder trial enters its second month, many courtroom observers say the prosecution's case appears to be faltering.

Defense attorney Mark Geragos has used several prosecution witnesses to make his case that the investigation which led to charges Peterson killed his pregnant wife was shoddily executed and designed from the start to implicate Peterson.

Geragos was scheduled to resume his cross examination today of Detective Allen Brocchini, the first investigator assigned to the report that Laci Peterson had vanished. Last week, Geragos got Brocchini to admit to several investigative lapses.

"It's still a horse race.........

Prosecutors have been thrown off kilter by their own witnesses. A juror who was excused blasted their case.

Sure, it's been a rough week for prosecutors in the Scott Peterson double- murder trial in Redwood City, but that's no reason to panic, say legal experts. It's still early in a case that's expected to last months.

"I'm sure the prosecutor has realized that he hasn't come close to proving his case,'' said former San Francisco prosecutor Bill Fazio. "But he should start getting his act together........

Police Say Defense Got 'Missing' Details Police Say So-Called Missing Details Provided to Scott Peterson's Defense

The Associated Press

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. June 25, 2004 — Police said Friday that Scott Peterson's lawyer tried to give jurors the false impression that authorities investigating the death of his pregnant wife conspired to hide a sympathetic witness.

During his questioning Thursday of Detective Allen Brocchini, defense lawyer Mark Geragos got the man to concede that he failed to record a witness who recalled seeing Laci Peterson at the warehouse where her husband stored his small boat the same boat prosecutors claim Scott Peterson hid from his wife so he could use it later to dispose of her body.

Sgt. Ed Steele, a spokesman for the Modesto police department, said Friday that officials detailed that account in other reports provided to the defense. He said Geragos was trying to mislead the jury..........

(06-25) 13:43 PDT REDWOOD CITY, Calif. (AP) --

Modesto police said Friday that Scott Peterson's lawyer tried to trick the jury into believing authorities conspired to hide a sympathetic witness when, in fact, police detailed the account in reports provided to the defense.

It was a blow in the short-term to the prosecution's double-murder case against Peterson because it looked like a detective intentionally deleted the witness account from his report after realizing it didn't fit with their theory that Peterson killed his pregnant wife.

But it may now work in the prosecution's favor as the trial trudges on into its second month, experts said Friday.

During his questioning Thursday of Modesto police Detective Allen Brocchini, defense lawyer Mark Geragos got the man to concede he failed to record a witness who recalled seeing Laci Peterson at the warehouse where her husband stored his small boat -- the same boat prosecutors claim Scott Peterson hid from his wife so he could use it later to dispose of her body.........

Just wondering if this trial has exceeded OJ`s yet in length? What are we in our 50th year with this trial now? It just goes to show how the media influences our judicial process and costs the taxpayers tons of money. A co-worker of mine had the same type of case as this one a few years back where a man was suspected of killing his wife. How long did the trial last? One month.

Well, I gather citizens can see how mismanged justice can be...

Kind of like how a comedian was telling his jokes on the comedy channel yesterday, Ron White, tater salad man.... Don't mess with Texas...

but there are those who want to know, keep track, and finalization of either a right verdict, or a out of this world run away jury verdict. This suspect is 'white', unlike the social issues that plagued in the OJ trial. Of course we know, that trial was a true farse, totally botched!

I heard that Geragos had not yet finished his cross of Brocchini. I'm sure, therefore, that he'll prolong it now, so he can bask in the glory of his pathetic, false "points" he's allegedly made off this witness.

O'Reilly was reporting on this case some time last week, and one of the court reporters mentioned something along the lines of the prosecution making a major faux pas. Something major ....some cop saying one thing and then finally coming clean and saying he deleted a message that said Lacy was at the boat (or something along those lines). And they were saying that because of that the prosecution just deflated a good part of their case.

Might you know more of this?

I think that Distaso will point out that the Det. redacted his report because another investigator interviewed the "witness" and will refer to that report that WAS turned over to MG. It will show that MG lied when he accused LE of withholding evidence.

good morning RB and thanks (as usual) for the pings....a word about defense attorneys...they are garbagemen (no, not all of them, only those who will say anything to win their case).....those on the tube will manage to see the "glass half empty" and make their careers based on how empty that half could be and for someone flipping thru the channels they have to sort out the trash from fact, since they are both given equal time. You would think they are auditioning for a job but in reality they actually do see the mud as this is where their point of view always is.

While we wait for a contrite and truly humbled Geragos to announce that he erred in his negative portrayal of Brocchini regarding the"excised" evidence, I have a question? Probably been discussed but I forgot, where is the mother of the other Peterson kids (Joe, Janey, etc.)? Did she "go missing" one Christmas Eve, too?

First of all, thank you for your pings. I don't post much but I do read all these posts.

Am I dreaming or didn't peterson say at the beginning of all this last year that the boat was a surprise for Laci and if so, then why would she be at a warehouse looking at the boat?

"December 16 According to Amber Frey's phone records, she and Scott Peterson speak at least three times by phone; according to Steve Jacobson's preliminary hearing testimony, Scott Peterson and Amber Frey speak five times by phone. According to suggestions made by Kirk McAllister at Scott Peterson's preliminary hearing, Amber Frey possibly begins recording her conversations with Scott Peterson".

Curious- Why would Amber start recording her conversations with Snott Dec.16th...??? Anyone have any ideas?

I'm sure that Distaso will be able to FOCUS on this point of attempted trickery by Geragos. If he's smart he will hammer the deceitfulness of Geragos's behaviour until it is drilled into the Jurors heads. Geragos HAD this discovery (interview with the said witness) for at least a year!! I read that the witness thought it might have been Dec. 20th or Dec. 23rd. I'm led to believe that LACI did NOT go into Scott's warehouse because of the chemicals.

(06-28) 10:12 PDT REDWOOD CITY, Calif. (AP) --

The judge in the Laci Peterson case admonished the Modesto Police Department on Monday for violating a gag order by publicly criticizing the defense.

Under cross-examination Thursday, defense attorney Mark Geragos got Detective Allen Brocchini to admit he deliberately deleted from his report a witness account that could be favorable to Scott Peterson, on trial in the death of his pregnant wife, Laci.

On Friday, Modesto police Sgt. Ed Steele told The Associated Press that Brocchini omitted the material because it is in other police reports provided to the defense.

"It's Geragos' spin," Steel told the AP.

All parties in the case are bound by the order that prevents them from talking.

Judge Alfred A. Delucchi called a Modesto police captain from the gallery Monday to stand before him.

"This has to stop," Delucchi said. "Go tell the chief that he's going to have to sit on his folks ... or there's going to be trouble."

After the admonishment, Geragos resumed his cross-examination of

Not yet Jackie. I am home today so I will keep checking. They mentioned one little blurb when I turned CTV on but it was just that Beth Karas would be giving a report at 12:30 I think. I'm hoping that Distaso is snorting mad today. I would like to see him exert some aggressiveness like he did that one time in the Prelim!! He CAN do it. Let's hope that Geragos pushed his buttons on Friday.

Amber may have taped Peterson before she went to the Police. She became aware of Peterson's marriage on Dec. 9th. On December 10th he goes and buys a boat. On December 14th, Peterson takes Amber to her Christmas party while leaving Laci alone at a couples baby shower. It was during Peterson's little explation to Amber about being married that he said he had "lost" his wife a year ago and that this would be his FIRST Christmas without her.

I'm not sure if Amber's friend told her about Laci "missing". I do know that SP begged Amber's friend to let him tell Amber himself about being married. That way he could lie and say that he WAS married but had lost his wife. Plus shed a few crocodile tears. HOW Amber found out about Laci JUST going missing I don't know but it was less than week before she went to Police herself.

I just listened to Beth Karas and she says there is "friendly cross-examination" of Brocchini going on still. They are dwelling right now on Kim McGregor. It appears to me that Geragos is just throwing anything and everything out there. Obviously Distaso has NOT be able to do his re-direct yet. According to Kimberly G-Newsome there is just a bunch of what if's coming out attempting to establish reasonable doubt.

I read that Article bear. I do agree that Amber probably didn't want to believe that Scott was responsible. But her attorney says, it will be Scott's OWN words that harm him a lot more than Amber's.

Mark Geragos got Detective Allen Brocchini to admit he deliberately deleted from his report a witness account that could be favorable to Scott Peterson

This makes me INSANE!

Got him to admit? Brocchini handed over his notes AND his audiotape.......how is that "getting him" to admit?

And nowhere did Brocchini say he DELIBERATELY deleted them; he just said he didn't put them in there.

It was Geragos and the press who said he did it on purpose.

Just heard a blurb on CTV...Kim McGregor, the wedding dress thief, has been presented as a viable suspect in Laci's murder. I have no details yet...She may be bipolar. Broncchini reviewing interview tape....Just another good muddying of the water IMHO...Geragos may go too far unless he can tie this together.... She wasn't truthful about her alibi.Beth reports

Beth say one writes in the date of his fishing license...so why was fishing trip called a last minute decision when he wrote in 23rd in addition to 24th...

True, but Beth fails to note they must write it in at time of purchase. One does not usually call a decision "last minute" if one has purchased a license to do so is my take.

"Apparently we've all been a bit misled about Frey's level of cooperation with police," Crier said in her on-air report, based on information from confidential sources, that police had a meeting Jan. 13, 2003, to discuss "the Amber problem."

Is Catherine Crier under the impression that she's a party to this case?

She's been making a lot of statements on her show lately AS FACT; for instance, she said that Scott went into the bathroom on Christmas Eve at the Rocha house, turned on the shower, and called Amber.

I don't even think they were AT the Rochas on Christmas Eve .....and I haven't heard of any phone calls between Scott and Amber on the 24th.

Unless she's getting this from Gloria, I have no clue where that stuff is coming from.

It appears to me that Geragos is just throwing anything and everything out there.

And that tells me he's got nothing to defend Scott with; now I know he doesn't have to prove anything, but it sure would help if anybody could account for Scott's whereabouts from 7:00 P.M. on the 23rd until 5:15 P.M. on the 24th.

MEG I agree. Geragos has had so many "theories" now that it is laughable. Any IDIOT can see what he's doing and IF they can see that, they most certainly should know by now that it's because he has NO DEFENSE. A DOZEN defenses just doesn't cut it.

Yup I read it and I heard Beth Karas say that it was Sharon Rocha that said maybe Kim should be given a key so that she could walk McKenzie. From what Beth said Kimberly McGregor had a crush on Scott. I didn't hear anything in there that could possibly make Kim a suspect in committing the murder? HOW could she committ a murder like that and haul a bundle that size of a dead pregnant woman. It's just so damn stupid. I could tear my hair. I hope to God there are no jurors stupid enough to believe such nonsensical drivel. Sometimes I think we don't give Jurors enough credit. None of Geragos's theories go anywhere. They are just theories with NO supporting evidence as opposed to Snott boy!!

I have finally learned to take everything "sources " are reported to have "revealed" with a block of salt....There may be truth and rumor, fiction and fact all mixed together....The media prosecution bashing got almost hysterical...

I agree it was a huge mistake for Broncchini to not put that part of the witness information in his report because of the HUGE deal made out of it...NEVER let them see an opening.
